Tunnel bow thruster type Bèta 24 Volt

Kalkman Scheepstechniek has developed a 24-Volt Bèta bow thruster specifically for small (passenger) ships and recreation vessels.

The propeller, which is installed vertically in a round tunnel, supplies propulsion to starboard or port. This is the most effective bow thruster in terms of yield/propulsion per kW.

The 24-Volt Bèta is available in 4 variants:

  1. 5,88 kW = 8 PK
  2. 8,8 kW = 12 PK
  3. 11,76 kW=16 PK
  4. 17,6 kW = 24 PK

Important characteristics/properties

  • materials of high quality
  • possibly including hopper with edge above water level (so the propeller is easy to reach and any dirt can be removed)
  • option of on/off control or ability to regulate revolutions
  • possible to add wireless control
  • also available in ram version
